Industry collaboration results in new fire and security apprenticeship

23 February 2017

A trailblazer apprenticeship has been launched for fire, emergency and security systems, with candidates expected to start their courses in September this year.

It was launched at an event at the London offices of media group UBM, jointly organised by the apprenticeship employers group, the Fire and Security Association (FSA), the Fire Industry Association (FIA) and the British Security Industry Association (BSIAA).

Apprenticeship employers group leader Pat Allen said: "The entire industry was able to collaborate and create a clear standard that will give apprentices the core skills and experience they require to become the engineers of tomorrow.

"The new apprenticeship will now provide an opportunity for employers with the fire, emergency and security sectors to work together and influence the future of our industry," he said.

Approved by the government last year, the new apprenticeship will replace the current industry framework to provide apprentices with the relevant skills for the modern workplace.

It took two years to develop through collaboration between the employers' group and industry bodies including the BSIA, FIA and FSA.
